Webster Groves moves to design phase for new aquatic center

September 6, 2023

Missouri – The Webster Groves City Council is moving toward an $11 million replacement for the Webster Groves Aquatic Center. City officials hope to take the project to a bond election in April 2024.

The project will include a Class B Swimming Pool, including site preparation and all necessary components to comply with the 2021 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

According to city officials, the facility will be built on 19 acres of city-owned property. The facility will be designed for efficient draining during the winter season to prevent damage from freezing. Additionally, the design will include placing all pumps and controls above areas that could flood from pipes or stormwater could damage.

Other features on the city’s design list, include:

  • Renovated bath house.
  • Refurbished filtration room.
  • Minimum of eight swim lanes.
  • Tower with three slides.
  • Zero entry area.
  • Concession stand.
  • New splash pad and play features.
  • Spectator area for swim meets.

The city hopes to complete the facility and open for the 2026 summer season.
